LTRVD0332 Workamping to Live

Be A Workamper
 

To start out this week’s show titled Workamping to Live, we have some great email information and questions this week. We discuss security issues, weighing your rig, RV reality TV shows, and working around batteries which outgas hydrogen.

Our feature this week is about Workamping to Live. We discuss our opinions about this growing trend with folks moving into RV’s to save money. We talk about some ways besides campground work to make real money.

That leads into a discussion about the upcoming Workamper Rendezvous in Heber Springs, AR. This is a great place to learn all about workamping and working on the road. Check it out at www.workamperevent.com We also discuss a career in fixing RVs and inspecting RVs. A good place to start is the RV Maintenance Technician course. Check it out at www.rvtechcourse.com

We discuss an op/ed piece written by our friend Greg Gerber of RV Daily Report www.rvdailyreport.com about the problem of RV parts distributers being consolidated and causing parts prices to rise as well as parts lead times lengthen.

We finish with a discussion from Russ and Tina DeMaris about 5th wheel trailer kingpin stabilizers.

LTRVD0295 The Frugal RVer

We continue our interview with Nick and Terry Russell. This week we talk with Nick about low cost camping and discuss his book “The Frugal RVer” written on this subject. Nick talks about many ways to save money as an RVer including staying longer, staying in unconventional places, workamping and volunteering, and many other ways to lower our costs.
